Talk about oldies, this Pub/Inn in downtown Nottingham, England has been there since 1189 AD, and lays claim to being the oldest such business in England. I spent 1953 at a not too distant airfield, and spent some time in this Pub,and another named Towers across the street, though Ye Olde Trip was unique. It doesn't just go back to that massive rock face. It extends deep into that rock face as a cave, and directly under Nottingham Castle. It was strictly candle lit in the cavern section. I believe there are a few other pubs throughout England that lay claim to being the oldest, though I've never heard of or visited one with the ambience of The Trip.

Oh my this is really cool, and looks great in B&W it would be perfect for the challenge Doug. I think it would be so cool to check this place out, thanks for sharing it with us. Maybe Richie, and or Bob have been there. =^..^=tigs

An excellent image of this very famous pub. I've never been but have been to pubs that date from the mid 1200's. One of the pubs in the Cheshire village I grew up in received its licence in the 1280's (though the building that's there now is a relatively modern 1450's!).

I bet they have some of the best aged whiskey in the world, Doug.
One of your best "shots" from the past. It is really crisp.
It is obvious you have always been a great photographer. You must have been born with the eye.
You can see some more photo's here.

Excellent post from the archives, Doug. I think Owd Bob was there for the grand opening.

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

Very nice capture of this very old inn with a quaint name. Built into the rock face! I checked it on Wikipedia. Here is a LINK to the page if you haven't seen it Doug. Your photo is definitely better than the one in Wikipedia.

Crisp and fresh yet nostalgic - the only reasonable approach to one's past. :)

A good perspective and angle in the photo, Doug. Are they still charging the original prices?
